    I subscribe to the local weekly, The St. Pauls Review. Typical very small town paper, all the way down to the Police Blotter. This week’s lead item in the Blotter details how Tommy Chavis, 35, of Raeford was stopped for speeding.

    Small town, indeed.

    I once got stopped for speeding near some hick town in Nebraska. About a week later my friend asked me about getting a ticket. Her MIL lives in that town and saw my name in the paper, and like any respectable small-town gossip she spread the word.

    I remember when our paper listed a prayer request for my little brother when he broke his arm. That was cute. But years ago there was a huge story about folks who thought flouridating the city water was the “mark of the beast”.

    My wife still gets her small town paper from Mississippi. In the Police Log last week, we saw the following: “Amy Havard, for public drunkenness and possession of alcohol in a dry county. This is not the Amy Havard who works at @@ Drugs on Main Street.”
